t.b.c.| Artist Talk: Samuel Fosso

Unfortunately, we were forced to postpone the artist talk of Friday 26th October. We will announce a new date very soon.

Filmmaker Pascale Obolo interviews photographer Samuel Fosso about his work in the exhibition Claude Samuel Zanele.


Samuel Fosso (NG/CM, 1962) started his own photography studio at the age of thirteen. He used remnants of film rolls to take his first self-portraits. Fosso communicates a clear political message by continually adopting new identities. Through his work, postcolonial freedom fighters finally have a place in the museum. 

Pascale Obolo is born in Yaoundé (Cameroon). She is a filmmaker and curator and lives in Paris. Pascale Obolo is editor of the art magazine Afrikadaa. In her most recent projects she questions the construction of historical stories in a postcolonial perspective. Pascale Obolo also coordinates the African Art Book Fair (AABF).
